    Just because conservatives talk about it doesn't mean they are wrong.

    That said minimum wage is definitely way too low.

    The sentiment perhaps, but the idea that Biden or this bill is going to immediately implement a $15 minimum wage is dead wrong.

    I have a funny feeling we will find out as time goes on. I will say their issues are very rarely heard on the national media.

    I would take living out rough times on a decent piece of land out in the country than in life in a city.
    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

    Oh, I didn't say that, nor did I assume that.

    Then why talk about the effect of a $15 minimum wage being implemented immediately?

    Stores publically said it was that they could not be profitable with the forced increases so...

    I remember when I posted an article that was written by economists who analyzed whether the minimum wage being raised causes job loses...spoilers it did not. Not in any instance of it being raised over the last 50 years.

    And yet it happened right away in CA and has happened in Seattle. Huh. So much for that article.

    Two stores out of thousands. Keep pushing what your fear mongering news sources are telling you though.

    That is not true:

    In fact, since that increase, job growth in Seattle has increased 12.9% (higher than the rate of the rest of the state).

    You mean everyone there isn't homeless because the price of a Big Mac jumped to $29.95?
